Hearing on Plan to End Homelessness
The Texas Interagency Council for the Homeless is holding public hearings across the state to receive public comment on the Texas Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. The Interagency Council, in conjuction with Austin's Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO), will host a public hearing in the Austin City Council Chambers on Tuesday, December 13th from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m.

- Data, research, and analysis;
- Affordable housing and supportive services;
- Homelessness prevention; and
- State infrastructure.
